This study is an examination of the qualities that define Antonín Dvořák's "American" style and consider whether or not those influences are also found in his Cello Concerto in B Minor, Op. 104. There is significant ambiguity in terms of Dvořák's concerto; it is unknown if the origin of the piece marks an accurate representation of the stylistic aspects he implemented in the New World. A live recording of the author performing the second movement of the Cello Concerto in B Minor, Op. 104 is provided as an appendix.
